Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Abu Dhabi, a city where records are broken; here you'll find the fastest roller coaster, the tower with the greatest lean, the largest cluster of 21st century cultural buildings. Large gardens, boulevards, international luxury hotel chains and opulent shopping malls line the streets and roads. The largest city of the United Arab Emirates also offers a great introduction to Arabic culture. The Grand Mosque is a dazzling white marble landmark and is the only mosque open to non-muslims.

Women digital nomads should know that you won't be required to wear a buka, headscard or veil in Abu Dhabi. However, it is respectful to keep shoulders and knees covered. Emirati ladies will wear an Abaya, but it is not expected that foreign women follow suit. Western women who do not cover their shoulders may find men turning away from them; this is out of respect to the woman and not an act of judgement.

Abu Dhabi is not a digital nomad hotspot for many reasons: high cost of living, and a hot and humid weather.

The best period is November to March, when temperatures are in the low 30°Cs. From June to September, temperatures average 43°C with 95% humidity.
